In review: 2019 GMC Terrain

Once among the homeliest of GMC's offerings, the Terrain has morphed into a good-looking vehicle, and with a smooth ride and decent overall performance. Still, at my tester's top-level Denali trim, it should be a little more luxo inside. Find out more in my review at AutoTrader. [Author: Jil McIntosh]

2020 GMC Sierra HD: New Towing Tech & An Allison Upgrade

The 2020 GMC Sierra HD pickup is due later this year with increased towing capacity. The Allison transmission gets a major upgrade on the taller, more robust 2020 Sierra HD. The list of towing technology is impressive: cameras, smartphone apps – the whole nine yards. The 2020 GMC Sierra HD pickup will soon be here, and besides having the design of a Soviet-era apartment building, it’s a pretty amazing piece of work. What’s also amazing is that I get to write about it, because most of the time,...

I drove a $77,000 GMC Yukon Denali to see if the huge SUV is worth the premium price — here's the verdict (GM)

The GMC Yukon Denali is about as upmarket as you can get without entering the true luxury realm. The full-size SUV has plenty of room for passengers and stuff, and it can tow a respectable 8,400 lbs. with four-wheel-drive and a beefy 6.2-liter V8 engine. I liked the Yukon Denali for its abundant power, smooth ride, and ability to tote a serious load. When people think of big luxury SUVs, nameplates such as the Cadillac Escalade and Lincoln Navigator come to mind. That's understandable becaus...

Scenic train rides to ski resorts

Ski vacations truly are the antidote to the post-holiday winter blahs. But sometimes getting to said ski vacations involves inching your way up an icy, two-lane highway, spending more time crammed in your car than speeding down a mountain. Much like traversing cities, trains help people avoid the pain of traffic en route to their ski destinations. Whether day trips near American metros like Denver or week-long excursions through foreign terrain in, say, Switzerland, taking a train to the moun...

Nicky Hayden tribute: Analog’s Honda XR650L flat tracker

Nicky Hayden left a massive hole in the motorcycling world—and in all of our hearts—when he passed away unexpectedly in May last year. In a fitting tribute, the Kentucky Kid was inducted into the AMA Hall of Fame earlier this month. To commemorate the occasion, the Hall of Fame Museum commissioned two tribute bikes from Chicago’s Analog Motorcycles. American Honda donated the motorcycles, including a CBR1000RR to be wrapped in Hayden’s Repsol MotoGP livery. But the direction of the second bik...

2019 GMC Sierra AT4: No Road, No Problem

The 2019 GMC Sierra AT4 is a more muscular version of the popular Sierra. Factory additions include a two-inch lift, two-speed transfer case, and a new performance package.

A $63 billion biotech is returning to the scene of its worst failure in search of new treatments for a deadly muscle disorder (BIIB)

An ALS trial failure five years ago was a costly and disappointing setback for Biogen. But today Biogen is becoming a major player again. It just bought a potential drug in a $90 million deal, and has four treatments in development. The company's head of neuromuscular disorders said there's reason to believe this time could be more successful — and it could have bigger implications for the company's pipeline. Five years ago, a drug for a rare and deadly disease failed to live up to its promis...

Taking the Train in Alaska: Fairbanks to Denali

I had no idea that there was passenger rail service in Alaska until I started researching how to get from Fairbanks to Denali National Park without renting a car.

The train station in Denali National Park sure comes alive when the train arrives Alaska Train Routes While there are two main train routes in Alas...

Reclaimed materials and a massive green wall transports Denali shoppers to the great outdoors

Earlier this fall, Connecticut-based, multidisciplinary design practice Pirie Associates completed a biophilic store that evokes the image of a romantic, aging barn bursting with lush greenery. The newly opened Providence, Rhode Island store was created as the eighth brick-and-mortar location for the outdoor clothing and gear retail chain Denali.

Go Small or Go Home: the Museum of Miniatures in Prague

What are the signs or circumstances that a child will grow up and become an artist that carves Jesus in the head of a poppy seed? Hyper-focus? Fantastic eyesight? Spending one’s formative years in cramped quarters? Implacable nerves? And is there any overlap with those of budding surgeons? Well, I’m stumped. Whatever they are, I suspect Anatoly Konenko, the Siberian microminiaturist artist whose work appears at the Museum of Miniatures in Prague, displayed them. Anatoly Konenko & the Museum of ...

From that point on its buses only – except for exceptions like government...
